The topic of school choice took over the day on Saturday Open Phones on WIBC January 22nd.  I spent a few minutes beating around the bush about my belief that the real problem in education is not school choice but the idea that the government should provide free education.  What government funds,  government controls.  Do we really want the state controlling what information our kids receive and how it’s presented to them?  Moreover,  how can one person have a right to something that is created and delivered by other people?  While I stumbled around trying to decide how to explain this, Jennifer jumped right in and, well, just said it!
